Global Digital Insurance Platform Market to Reach $169.2 Billion by 2026
- The insurance industry has been rather quick at lapping up the digitization opportunity presented by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic caused insurers to escalate efforts to digitize their operations and processes, make way for new business models and new streams of revenue and at the same time deliver a unique, yet seamless digital customer experience. The pandemic has set in motion a colossal and unparalleled digital movement, wherein insurance providers are either simply beefing up their transition to the digital medium; or exploring innovative technologies and/or collaborating with existing technology partners or Insurtech start-ups for the development of new tools and models; or are even exploring unconventional routes to outsource solutions in order to bring agility to their operations. There are also others who are working towards improving their business by introducing proof of concepts and quick minimum viable products for speedy generation of solutions. Insurance providers have been particularly responsive to the situation by digitizing the two main worrisome areas, their contact centers and claims functions, which have been at the receiving end since the pandemic outbreak. In addition to automating and streamlining processes, particularly involving intelligent underwriting; insurance providers have been improving their use of external data, and unstructured and structured data; and studying ways to use knowledge graphs that enables them to identify correlated data trends.
